Storage shelves with baskets are popular for home or office decorating and gift-giving anytime. Yet, the holidays offer a variety of opportunities to use them in festive ways in your home or office — or give them as gifts. A little creativity will go a long way towards utilizing storage shelves, baskets or basket benches in your holiday decorating and in creating unique gifts for family and friends.
Place a basket storage bench in the entryway of your home or in the family room, den or dining room. Use the seat surface of the bench to display a nativity set, Christmas village or collectible figurines. Arrange the items on a decorative table runner, velvet fabric or a piece of glittered cotton or polyester batting.
Trim the baskets under the bench to match the decorating theme on the bench seat. Tie strands of natural or colored raffia around the basket handles to match your display. Or, loop the twine hangers of star, angel, or Baby Jesus ornaments through the top of the basket handles. For a Christmas village, bend some short pieces of artificial holly vines or pine greenery around the basket handles. Highlight elegant collectibles with velvet or gold ribbons and bows tied through the basket handles.

Shelves for Baskets
Bookcase shelves, what-not shelves and open-frame shelves for baskets offer holiday decorating and storage areas for any room of the home or office. Decorate the baskets to match the design of the room they are placed in. You may also want to move a bookcase shelf or a basket shelf near your Christmas tree or into a room where it isn’t normally placed in order to provide some extra holiday storage. Many narrow what-not shelves can fit into tight spots, yet hold up to four baskets for storing seasonal items. Place holiday decorations on the top of on one or more of the shelves of your narrow storage unit.
